Dawson was a very happy young man whose smile could light up the entire room. He was very dedicated to his schoolwork.

Dawson was a thoughtful, generous, loving, gentle soul who would do anything to help others. He was known for his contagious smile. He enjoyed playing Xbox with his dad, brothers, and friends. His love for all things Japanese left him with the desire to go to Japan and he had recently started learning the Japanese language. Dawson shared a very close and loving relationship with his family.
